The Wayne State University (WSU) Center for Urban Studies was asked by the Michigan Department of Education Office of Special Education to conduct a yearly survey of former Michigan students who received special education services.

The survey asks former students who exited school and one year later are enrolled in some post-high school education or training program and/or are employed. Postsecondary outcomes data assist in determining the effectiveness of the education system (Michigan Part B State Performance Plan / Annual Performance Report).
